spectral linear scattering coefficient


relative decrease in radiant flux caused by scattering expressed by the relative density of the spectral radiant flux, Φe,λ(λ), with respect to propagation length, l, of a collimated beam at a point in a diffusing medium

Note 1 to entry: The spectral linear scattering coefficient is expressed in metre to the power minus one (m−1).
